We’ve put together helpful tips and tricks to help take the best photos for your custom prints, pet & family portraits.
The best photos mean the best portrait results! If you still need help please feel free to reach out to us via the contact form below, email us, or click the chat button.
Your Photos and info
We use our magic to handcraft your art!
Lookout for an email of your mock-up! Let us know if any changes are needed at this stage.
Your art is printed, packed & shipped to your door
• High resolution 3mb + from smart phone or camera. No blurry photos or thumbnail screenshots from social media please.
• Well-light room, or natural daylight. If photos are too dark / light the result will be too.
• Pet photos look best front on at eye level. People can be in any pose keeping in mind what you provide is what we will create.
• No cropped faces or other bits you need included in the portrait. We cannot re-create stuff that isn’t already there.
Clear, Well-lit Photos
We use your photos to make your artwork, so the better the photo, the better the result! If the photo is too dark for example, we wont be able to see certain details and that will be missing from your print.
If you have original high resolution files, please send these. The larger the better! Sometimes we have to use social media pics. Please save as files instead of screenshots. Do you have a really old physical photo? Please scan in and send. 300dpi is a good resolution to use.
Front-on eye level view is best. While you can provide funny views or faces for people, pets look best if kept to similar pose as the example photos. We cannot change poses, so please provide the pose you want us to re-draw!
